Dale Schulz - Nanaimo - "As he sees it" - June 11/16

Lifelong Nanaimo resident, professional artist and illustrator Dale Schulz 'sees' much of Nanaimo many of us simply walk by without giving a second thought.

Through the eyes of an artist the everyday can become almost magical and with a few simple photos of his daily walks, Dale captures and shares some of that magic on his Facebook page.

The following is the most recent example of what Dale sees when he walks about our lovely seaside community many of us just take for granted.

Dale's Post - June 11/16

It is an 'All Harewood' edition of our daily walk photos today!

Because it's Saturday, our friend Attila joined us and he was a big help - holding on to Indy's leash while I lay on the ground and crawled around trying for good shots!

We started off heading up to Colliery Dams Park - on the way I shot a nice moody Mt. Benson - from Honey Drive and Park Avenue just up the street from our place. I also took a picture of a 'nearly-forgotten bench' on 6th Street because I wasn't sure I'd see an ‪#‎abandonedchair‬ - thanks to Attila again -I got one - but that's later.

At Colliery Dams I shot a nice little ground level tree base; Attila looks for Colly at the Middle Dam. I looked too but the lake was quiet. At the Lower Dam there is a little section of the footpath that I always love - I shot it today - it has a lovely little 's' curve and I like the tiny arched bridge.

We exited the park at Wakesiah Avenue and Harewood Road and walked along Wakesiah to 3rd Street. Along the way I shot two of the Industrial Arts and Trades buildings at VIU and my old high school, NDSS.

On 3rd Street Attila spotted the #abandonedchair - YEAH!

I also took a picture of the old roses and old fence post on 3rd Street. We turned South on Howard Avenue and I took a picture of the VIU campus from an empty lot just over the hill.

Shot the Day Lily on 4th Street - I liked the orange on orange.

We crossed through University Village (Harewood Mall) so that I could get just ONE more shot of my favourite little tree behind the 711.

The last shot is one of my favourite buildings in all of Nanaimo - not just Harewood - the leaning garage on 5th Street. Today the light was pretty good for a front shot!
